QMX REVEALS TNG AND MORE TOS AND MOVIE 1:6 FIGURES AT TOY FAIR
The folks at Quantum Mechanix went to Toy Fair to show off their growing line of Star Trek 1:6 scale articulated action figures. QMx started off the line of 12" figures last year with Star Trek: TOS Kirk, Spock and McCoy. Each figure comes with a range of different hands and accessories. At ToyFair they revealed the first looks at their TOS Sulu and Scotty figures. QMx tells TrekMovie this figures are still in development and they don’t have a firm date yet. They are also developing a new captain’s chair accessory which you will be able to buy separately.
And to celebrate its 30th anniversary, QMx is introducing 1:6 figures for Star Trek: The Next Generation. The first release will be a Capt. Picard which is due in April. It will be available in two different versions, standard (for $179.95) and limited-edition exclusive ($199.95). The standard includes a bevy of 24th century accessories including phaser, communicator badge, tricorder, and his Earl teacup. The exclusive includes an additional set of hands and Picard’s phaser rifle. QMx also has a Lt. Cmdr. Data is in development, but no firm release date nor pricing currently available.
In addition QMx is also working on some movie era 1:6 figures. They showed off a Star Trek: Beyond Kirk as well as early prototypes of Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan Adm. Kirk and Capt. Spock figures. There are no firm dates for any of these figures.
QMx also revealed to TrekMovie they have some additional Star Trek items that weren’t on display at Toy Fair. As part of their celebration of The Next Generation they will be introducing a new series of TNG art prints available on heavy, museum-quality paper stock. In addition for later in the year, Quantum Mechanix is diving into the journaling category for the back to school season. Their concepts are currently being submitted to the licensor for review, but QMx says they are "unlike anything else in the market." They are targeting $14.95 for the journals, TrekMovie will have more details on all the upcoming QMx Star Trek products when we can get them.
